                    Pete E Yes but you’re missing the point. The comparison is Somebody else + team defense vs. Kawhi + team defense and the numbers show Kawhi is making a huge difference as the primary defender.

                  Kawhi guarded the monster Giannis and scored over 30 points . It's like when MJ guarded magic jonson and scored over 30 in 1st round in 1991 .But Bulls lost the game and Lapters won , so Kawhi is the GOAT

                        With your payton break down so how can you say a player is one of the greatest if this is no defense era...really now make sense to just enjoy they league thats here now!!

                          This is why he's the best player in the league, he's significantly impacting the game at both ends. There are so few guys in the league who can say that, and he's better than all of them, including Giannis.

                            Don’t forget about Tony Allen. The only player in the league to make Kevin Durant look like Anthony Bennet. This man put straight clamps on KD

                                Remember Lebron was in the same position in 2012 ECF against Boston and scored 45 points in 3 Quarters in Game 6.........Now Everybody is saying Giannis is next Lebron......Lets see if Giannis has that determination in him to bring the bucks back. And Kawhi is a little better than KD........

                                  From - Gary,Indiana ---- The Toronto Raptors are playing some Very Good Team Defense[ that Game #5 Win, was a Big Win ] They are Stopping Giannis A. ( layups ) - Two pretty good Defensive Teams - But - In a NBA, 7game Series ( somebody is always going to be Cold ) "Thats the Game Baby"

                                    Game 3/4: Bucks doubled and tripled team on Kawhi to take away his inside game. So Kawhi passed out more and didn't score as much in Game 4.

                                    Game 5: Bucks decided not to doubled and tripled team on Kawhi, so Kawhi took advantage of the match-up. He slashed into the paint, caused the defense to collapse and dished out to perimeter guys for three's (thank you VanVleet!).

                                    This is why Kawhi is definitely the MVP so far in the playoff. Not to mention Kawhi's defense on Jimmy Butler and Giannis. Where can you find a player that can guard anyone and still give you 25+ points consistently in a game on an efficient level.

                                      Giannis forcing the ball into the paint & isn’t patient enough when the double team comes

                                        Kawhi is a defensive jugernot going both ways very similar to Jordan, is on his way to being the new Jordan cause hes also clutch.

                                          Wonder how the raptors are gonna defend golden state. The bucks have one impact player. The warriors have at least 5 or 6

                                            The only advantage Toronto would have heading into the finals is having all their games vs teams with length. Magic, Sixers, bucks are all sized up, lengthy, players. So Toronto would be used to it by now and would help them score slightly easier vs the dubs. Albeit itll still be their greatest challenge yet.

                                              When did Giannis become a transcendent offensive player 😂 nick wright hush bro... all he does is run over people and throw the ball to a shooter

                                                Nick Wright so but hurt... bro Raptors should be 4-1 going to the Chip right now... Bucks only outplayed raptors in game 2. Raptors through game away in game 1

                                                  Kevin Durant would not have taken Raptors to the conference finals. I don't know why people think he's the best player. Kawhi is impacting offensively and defensively while stopping one of the best players in the world, something Durant can only dream about doing

                                                        If Raps didnt give up 4th quarter lead in game #1.... This series would be over 4-1 Raps. Instead its 3-2

                                                          Toronto has exposed milwaukee's half court game. If you stop the fast break and slow the game down, milwaukee's paln B is get it to giannis and have him go 1 vs. 2 or 3. Not a recipe for success. Milwaukee has to pay with pace or they are dead in the water. Credit to nick nurse for using a 3-2 old school zone defence to clog up the bucks speed. Unless the bucks adjust they will be done in 6 games. They need to start using their 3 point shooters more and use giannis as a facilitator. Less hero ball for giannis and more kick the ball out to the shooters.

                                                                          • Eric Lind

But putting Kawhi as the first defender is tough for Giannis cause he can't easily dribble drive past him like he's used to (no one can!!). Kawhi is that special of a defender. So that mean less pressure on the help defenders and they can stay with the shooters longer. Giannis is taller but only 12 lbs heavier so Kawhi is more compact and immovable than Giaanis. They are about the same speed but Kawhi has better hands.
